My new job hasn’t left much time for drawing or writing (or anything). This is pretty much everything I’ve done since October. What you saw during those months was all a queue, but it’s run out now. Sorry.
Rivek in modern clothing. I imagine he’d be some minor son of a New York cartel leader who bar-tends at his family front and moonlights as a hitman.
This piece will be on sale ($85) at The Hive Gallery's non-themed show in Downtown LA on February 8.
I think, because you’re just entering the visual field, you should try a lot of aspects. Especially in school, there’s plenty of time to experiment. Cover the basics (perspective, anatomy, color, composition, etc), but find some part you’re really passionate about (character design, prop design, storyboarding, etc).
In the end, your portfolio should showcase your specialty and give a clear idea of what you want to do. Try for an 80%/20% split.
Happy New Year! Here are some Harry Potter pieces, a string of obsessive fanart started by the Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood I did for Ladies of Literature. I intend on making this a series of bookmarks for the upcoming con season.
I got it at a local drugstore. At least in the United States, this brand is widely available over the counter, but I’m sure there are many options in most pharmacies.
I like to imagine Will comes up with a million slightly-insulting-but-mostly-endearing nicknames for Rivek, mostly along the lines of “Feathers” and “Birdbrain.”
Rivek just calls her “Dearling.” (Get it? “Deer”? Hurrhurr. Double entendre FTW.)
The worse I feel, the more I just want to draw cute things. Quick doodle from when I was at the doctor (HK has an amazing and affordable healthcare compared to the US).
Let me just get paid to draw kawaii smooches all day.
Toriayne looked at the sky in wonder. He shivered despite his fur-lined coat. Five years in the desert had made him weak to the cold. He whispered, “It’s been so long since I’ve seen snow.”
Bohren wrapped his arms around the tailor’s shoulders. ”Well, it’s been so long since I’ve seen you smile.”
A while ago, someone requested I draw my characters in winter gear, so I decided to do a different pairing than usual (a.k.a. Britney's favorite pairing).
Happy New Year from Hong Kong! Lots of noise from downstairs (and French from a neighboring rooftop). Here are the sketches I did at the Singapore sketchjam.
Sure is colder here than I expected.
The Queen of Swords!
The Hive Gallery (729 S. Spring St. Los Angeles, CA) invited me to participate in their upcoming Tarot Art Show! I am so honored!
Opening night is Saturday, January 4th, 8-11:30PM , and Art Walk is Thursday, January 9th. The original will be available for purchase ($670).
I was doing some test lighting for an art show piece, and Britney requested I draw my characters with new hair. I really like Will's bob, so I might make that canon… but Rivek just looks like a greasier Tahno.
Merry belated Christmas and happy Boxing Day to you Canadians!
